Hero 5 black changing settings by itself when in water

[ New ]
I finally took my hero 5 black into the surf, no water proof case as that was the whole purpose of buying this model because it was waterproof etc with no housing. But the whole time I was in the water the touch screen decided to change settings by itself? Is this just something that happens? It was frustrating as hell because each time I went to take a short video it had changed the settings!

Also my lens fogs like there's no tomorrow! Is this common?

Hi, when going into water then you must use the screen lock feature on the GoPro, to do this swipe down and press the padlock icon.
